Meningitis Vaccinations Recommended
School nurses in Tennessee are urging parents to have their children vaccinated against meningitis before the school year starts. Half of the state’s teens aren't vaccinated. Meningitis can be spread through contact such as sharing water bottles and drinking glasses. Ten percent of people who contract the disease die, sometimes within 24 hours. State Department of Health immunization program director Dr. Kelly Moore said the shots are not required in Tennessee, but are recommended.
